Spa products, in all their pretty packaging, make us feel good. Bath salts, candlelight, body butters and luxury robes have a way of transforming even our t-shirt and sweatpants wearing-selves into feminine goddesses. Well, now these same spa products can actually make us feel, not just good, but great…because these products might actually help make others feel better too.
Philosophy Shower for the Cure and She Colors My Day Charity Bubble Bath
Talk about generosity! Shower for the Cure, Philosophy’s pink ribbon shower gel, gives 100% of their net proceeds from the sale of this product to Women’s Cancer Research Fund. The memorable scent of this creamy all-in-one formula that can be used as a shampoo, shower gel or bubble bath has a poem inscribed on the bottle that was inspired by the unforgettable yearly charity event chaired by Rita Wilson and Kate Capshaw. And if you’re a woman who loves a pink-tinted, bubble gum scented bathtub filled with high foaming bubbles (who wouldn’t?), get Philosophy’s She Colors My Day Charity Bubble Bath. 100% of philosophy’s net proceeds goes to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund to support the early detection of women’s cancers. Available at http://www.philosophy.com
Your feet always do the walking. So, this year, let ‘em do the talking too! The next time you get a pedicure, sport Pink Ribbon Yoga Sandals™ by Beech Sandal Company and you’ll be supporting the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation. Not your average flip flops, Yoga Sandals allow for proper heel support and gentle spread of the toes providing alignment, stability and balance – not to mention a smudge-proof pedicure. They also come with a reusable tote and charm loops (charms sold separately) to express your personal style! Visit http://www.yogasandals.com.
Shelby Nicholson Dream Chenille Comfy Cozy Comfy Lounge Robe
The blush-colored Dream Chenille Comfy Cozy Comfy Lounge Robe by Shelby Nicholson truly is a dream – at least the chenille material is! It’s unlike any other robe I’ve felt, offering the same amount of luxury as a fluffy robe but without all the fluff (seriously, it packs up nice). Snuggle up with one and show your support of the Breast Cancer Network of Strength. To purchase, visit http://www.hipundies.com and Hipundies will donate 20% of the proceeds to this worthy cause.
Altru Appreciation Collection
Pink never looked better than on the Altru Appreciation Collection. Presented in beautiful packaging inspired by the rich textiles of Persia, this line offers a rich, exotic fragrance infused with Tahitian tiare, daffodil buds and petals of white freesia. Perfect the environment of your at-home spa with these products and Altru will donate 20% of proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for any Appreciation Soy Blend Wax Candle, Aromatic Incense or Interior Fragrance Oil sold during the month of October. Available at Neiman Marcus and http://www.AltrubyGamillah.com.
Pink isn’t the only color you’ll be seeing this October. Proceeds from Er’go Soy Candles’ Blue Ribbon Benefit collection go to ovarian cancer research and treatment, with Er’go donating 20% of all net sales to OvarianCancerAwareness.org. Er’go Candles are made from chemical-free vegetable soy wax farmed in the Midwest of the United States and the blue ribbon candle has a fresh Tonic Breeze fragrance.
Pour a gallon of bubble bath into your tub and you’ll probably emerge feeling like a brand new woman. And yet, we all know that there really are no miracles-in-a-bottle. But maybe, with the charitable donations made from the sale of these spa products, we may be closer to finding one.
